When I read a prior reviewer's description of Sydenstricker's I had to smile since on my initial visit to the store a few years ago, my reaction was slightly similar (although not nearly as descriptive!). Entering an old building filled with glassware patterns of flowers, peppers, and the like can be a bit overwhelming, especially if the designs are not... More

The most interesting part of this attraction is the way these items are created! The overall store needs a do-over. These items could be displayed in a much better format, which would probably increase sales. Even the outdoors and parking lot look like they really don't care anymore. The person at the desk, provided very limited information and appeared uninterested.... More

Lovely gallery of unique glass art. Be sure to visit the workshop in the back if it's open. I was fascinated watching the painstaking process of sprinkling powdered glass onto a glass plate through a pattern sheet. Then after all the colors are sprinkled on, the second layer of glass is placed on top, so that the pattern is really... More

What a wonder place to visit and see the beautiful patterns on these glass plates. If you are looking for a wedding gift it is a perfect spot. Patterns so pretty, you want to display them. I warn you it will be difficult to pick your favorite.

incredible glass pieces - wanted to get plates for 1984 and 1987 for my girls - not available - could have ordered but would have cost a lot more - otherwise beautiful pieces

I have a collection of beautiful bowls, and have given many as gifts. The artwork is unique and functional.

You have to see this place! IT smells like old people and moth balls. It's a complete assault on the eyes. Every where you turn you see ugly flowers on glass plates/bowls. I wanted to ask about how the items were made but didn't want to insult the artist. There are no prices listed on anything. I can't imagine trying... More

What a beautiful selection of glass dishes. A true Cape art. I was hoping for matching glasses, but they have mostly bowls, platters and different size dishes.

I've been buying for myself and as gifts, glass platters, bowls, and serving pieces from here for the past 25 years. There is a wide range of patterns for every taste. These are items you won't find anywhere else. While they have a few trendy patterns, most of them are timeless.

The Cape has galleries aplenty, but this is special. Fascinating designs in glass plates (mostly) and other decorative items, made on-premises for many years. Custom work is available (bought a set of custom plates for our son's wedding). The website is highly informative, and ordering is available, but the photos can't convey the radiance of this wonderful artwork. If you're... More
